turn off mentions?

is there a way to turn of mention notifications?

we are using the Email This Issue plugin and do not have notification schemes enabled for our projects, yet mentions do seem to trigger an email from the outgoing smtp address that we have setup in the JIRA system config - this is causing duplicate emails from both JIRA and the plugin - can we disable mention notifcations or configure them better? what event do mentions generate (so that maybe we can control it better from the plugin)?

You can turn off the 'Browse Users' global permissions and set the 'Email Visibility of users' option to hidden. Just note that this will also disable the functionality to add users to the Watchers list and change the Reporter.
